The Road to Agility

Inspiration only takes a moment, but change may take longer. I spent a great day yesterday exploring ‘creativity‘ with some wonderfully generous people. We shared ideas and stories about co-creation, about music, about agility. I wanted to explore ways to unlock creativity within teams, to find permissive spaces for experimentation, learning and failure and ways of developing mindsets that encourage and support this, but i know it won’t every be a short journey.

The Road to Agility

Unlocking creativity, becoming agile, takes time. It requires permissions and narrative

The path to agility must start with disturbance: organisations recognising the need to be agile to meet the ever changing requirements of the Social Age. From disturbance, to permission: finding ways to free up spaces and create frames for people to experiment.

Next, forming and joining communities and understanding and exploring the co-creative process. Creativity may work best within a framework, to ensure everyone’s voice is heard and that there’s a clear narrative of outcomes at the end. Even when working in creative spaces, we have to find metrics and analytics that enable us to report within traditional business frameworks.

There’s a journey to unlocking creativity, a route to agility, with many stops along the way. I’m fascinated to explore this further and develop a route map of skills to develop over time.
